XJet Private Aviation: Another Educo Holistic Business Model Success
Josh Stewart, Founder and President of XJet LLC (XJet), comes from Belfast in Northern Ireland. He spent eight years in Africa as a bush pilot. Josh went on a seminar and while there came up with the idea of a private aviation company. With encouragement and guidance from Tony he formed XJet LLC in 2004 in Denver, USA. Josh’s vision attracted others who also attended the Educo® Seminars, and soon they were a fully committed team.
BEST OF THE BEST
After successfully raising $33.4 million, they built their award-winning flagship facility in Denver, Colorado. They were fully subscribed with members and 15 jets, a luxurious clubhouse for their members, auto spa for the aircraft and vehicles, outstanding hangarage for the jets and high-end office and retail space. Leading lifestyle publication, Robb Report, named them the BEST OF THE BEST in 2007. Then they were awarded the American Institute of Architects (AIA) award for the finest designers within the US and the prestigious ADDY Gold Medal for corporate branding. In 2013 Josh signed a deal with Dubai World Central, the world’s first purposebuilt ‘aerotropolis’. It was agreed that XJet’s Global Headquarters would be based there with the purpose of XJet providing its seven star service to the United Arab Emirates.
A BILLION DOLLAR COMPANY
At an event in September 2006 Tony said to the large crowd present that XJet would become a ‘billion dollar company’. Global business advisory firm FTI Consulting was commissioned to work on an independent valuation of XJet in 2008. They announced that upon completion of the existing projects in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Dallas and Paris, XJet would have a value of $971 million.
Josh became a member of the Board of Directors of Belize Natural Energy Ltd. (BNE) and International Natural Energy (INE) and is now helping a whole country reach its potential. ‘I remember clearly the turning point in my life,’ Josh says. ‘It was the moment, using Unconscious Attention®, that I imprinted my clear, invincible vision of my outcome on my mind. A vital part of our success is Tony’s business model on which the company is based and that most of our staff have attended his seminars’. In 2012 XJet secured the top ‘Number 1 in the Americas’ award in the Aviation International News annual survey. (XJet had shot to Number 3 in 2011, their first year in the survey, and has been top-listed again in 2013).
